I've just found a fantastic way to get thousands of visitors to your site!!

Join Yahoo! Groups. After signing up, just join a group (there are hundreds!) and then send a topic/message with a link to your site. Everyone in the group will see your message!! Some groups have thousands of people in them!

You can also start a topic, too, of course.

Hi marky

Participating in online forums on topics related to your website can be a great way to attract traffic to your site. Just be sure that whatever posts you make are relevant to the discussion and that your posting of links is in keeping with their community guidelines.

I just mention this so that anyone who reads this advice does not get into trouble with Yahoo! for spamming, although I know that certainly is not your intention.

Monique, that's a good point. I joined a couple of 80s groups to promote my http://simplyeighties.com website.

There are some Yahoo groups available that allow you to talk about anything and post just about any link, but some groups don't like spam. So you're right, be careful about just posting a link to your website to any old group.

Hi, Dear, Your Idea is great but you can submit your website in 200+ search engines like google, bing, ask, geocities,ask etc. Just go to google.com adn search for "Entrie web submission" It wil result in many sites but you will have to choose just 2 not more because all of them have to do teh same work i.e the submission of your websites in many search engines.
